If you use a new grill and new chrome, it would look great on a Black car. I would not use an old grill just for the fact that the plastic has deteriorated over time and makes for a poor surface for the paint to adhere to. Those retaining clips are a pain to put back on. Oh, and be careful when you do the new chrome strips. The ones I got from Performance Products were all the same length and I had to shorten a couple with a pair of tin snips. Since the profile of the strips is basically a "C", when you snip them, it compresses the shape on that end. That is not a problem as long as the grill frame hides the crimped end.
